Delia Bense-Kang talks with researchers Ian Kelmartin, Katherin Osborn, and
Eric Bjorkstedt, about their MPA Baseline Monitoring projects.
“MPAs are one part of the management tool box….they serve as an
insurance policy for fisheries, potentially enhancing some reproductive
output, but also giving us an idea of what does an un-fished system look
like so we can better ground truth our management models,” states Eric
Bjorkstedt, NMFS Fisheries Oceanographer and Adjunct Dept. of Fisheries
Biology at HSU.
